The Pauld­ing County Sheriff’s Office has pur­chased a Pre­scrip­tion Drug Drop Box to help res­i­dents dis­pose of old or expired pre­scrip­tions, includ­ing nar­cotics.

The secured lock box will be stored in the sheriff’s office, but it’s imme­di­ately avail­able to the pub­lic.

The sheriff’s office will only accept pill med­ica­tion. No liq­uids are accepted. When the box is full, the sher­iff will work with the Drug Enforce­ment Agency to prop­erly dis­pose of them. All med­ica­tions brought to the office for dis­posal will be logged in and deposited into the box immediately.
